    Sometimes I get that under Linux in exactly the same situation. It is
    getting worth if I have enough time to pull-down a menu, because in
    that case, I have the mouse cursor focus grabbed by the menu, and
    since the ASSERT blocks the rest, the only solution I have to unlock
    the whole thing is to kill AbiWord.... from either a remote shell or
    by switching to tty.
